The Denver Broncos released their first injury report of the week today and received some good news on the injury front. Starting linebacker Todd Davis returned to practice while a host of other injured Broncos returned on a limited basis.

The good news here is that starting inside linebacker is finally fully recovered from a calf injury that he suffered in the early portions of Training Camp about two months ago. He returned on a limited basis last week and is now putting in a full week of practice this week, so he will be good to go come Sunday.
The Broncos defense has missed him and he will slot in as the teams top inside linebacker along side Josey Jewell.
The the other big news here is corner Bryce Callahan returning on a limited basis. It is possible that he will follow Davis’s progress and get eased into action this week before hopefully putting in a full week of practice next week. His status will be one we will need to watch closely the next few days.
The other promising news was starting fullback Andy Janovich and reserve linebacker Joe Jones returning to practice on a limited basis. Both have been out with multi-week injuries and are now close to returning. Like Callahan, I am not sure if they return this week, but their progress will also be something we need to closely watch. If either of the three put in a full practice Thursday or Friday, they could hit the field this Sunday.
Here is your Wednesday injury report for the Denver Broncos and the Green Bay Packers ahead of their Sunday afternoon showdown.
